Marble Computer Takes On All Perplexing Challenges
Application modernization is a fact of life for most IT organizations and any software company. The use of new computing platforms such as the Cloud as well as new mobile computing devices has created challenges far beyond one could ever imagine a few years ago. However, these Legacy Applications contain the mission-critical data processes of past generations. The key to success is to unearth these secrets and accurately upgrade these Legacy Applications or move them to new platforms as required. At Marble Computer, we have the software products to make this task easier.
A History of Our Clientele
Marble Computer has a long history of supporting enterprise computing clients that date back to 1976. Marble Computer delivers best-of-breed software tools for IBM mainframe customers to ensure the integrity, performance and analysis of their COBOL applications.
Our flagship product, Control/DCD, documents COBOL programs with our Digital Document Manual (DDM) technology. Docet/EV documents the IT Enterprise.
Marble Computer’s software tools focus on Dev/Ops, Legacy Modernization and Cloud Migration projects.
The Tools We Incorporate Into Our Software Applications
RES is an advanced set of software products for documenting the IT Enterprise. Docet/EV is a must-have tool for Legacy Modernization, DevOps and Cloud Migration implementations.
Control/DCD is the latest version of the DCD (Data Correlation and Document) product. Control/DCD significantly reduces the cost of maintaining COBOL applications and produces the Digital Documentation Manual (DDM).
DCD Pre-Compiler for COBOL 6.2
Control/DCD has the necessary functionality to provide warnings and capture errors in older versions of IBM compilers. There are many types of errors that the Control/DCD pre-compiler will catch thus making migrations to enterprise COBOL compilers faster and less costly.

Our software company is proud to be an IBM Business Partner reselling z/OS software products. Our focus will initially be on the application development tools, rational and problem determination tools.
The observation made on our part is that companies are looking at what is needed for conversion to COBOL 6.2 and are moving at a glacial pace to do the conversion.
There may be several reasons for moving slowly and only one of these reasons may be the time it takes to convert the COBOL, yet the time to do the conversion is still a significant consideration.
“Those of you who are familiar with legacy systems know the widely cited stat: *70-80% of all business transactions worldwide are written in COBOL. That represents 220-350 Billion lines of COBOL Code. And there are roughly 1.5 Billion lines of new code created each year. *Gartner/IBM”
“Is COBOL the dinosaur language that will eventually go away? Think twice, Fortune 500 IT Executives must figure out who will maintain their mainframes when COBOL programmers retire in the future. The cost to convert is too expensive.”
“The Mainframe is not going away. Organizations worldwide run between 220-350 billion lines of code today. It would be a herculean feat to replace every single program with a new language without introducing detrimental bugs. Oh, and the cost would be in the Trillions of Dollars. *Gartner/IBM”
